Rick Braun - Crossroads
Rick Braun Crossroads Shanachie Entertainment

One of Smooth Jazz’s most innovative and popular hitmakers as both artist and producer, trumpet and flugelhorn great Rick Braun springs into his second quarter century with CROSSROADS, an eclectic collection showcasing the multitude of styles he loves. Ensembling with a crew of longtime collaborators (Philippe Saisse, Richard Elliot, Peter White) and for the first time with funky studio legends Greg Phillinganes, Michael Thompson and Gregg Bissonette), Braun dives deep into contemporary pop, old school dance/funk, bossa nova, Americana, Latin jazz and other tasty styles. Braun reflects his joy as a family man with a thoughtful tribute to his maternal grandparents, a vibrant jam dedicated to his daughter Emma and tapping his son Kyle create a lush keyboard intro to a cool re-imagining of a recent Bruno Mars hit.
